Fatah, Hamas Trade Blame for Blackout

More proof that the Gaza blackout is just another Muslim Hamas deception. Via IsraelNN:

Fatah officials accused Hamas of causing a blackout in Gaza on Sunday, saying the group had caused the fuel shortages that led it to shut down Gaza’s only power plant. Hamas leaders steal the fuel coming into Gaza and use it in their own cars and houses, one official explained. Another expressed hope that the power shortage would lead residents of Gaza to get rid of Hamas.

Hamas accused Fatah of working with Israel to overthrow Hamas and retake control of Gaza. Hamas has blamed Israel for the blackout, despite the fact that Israel continues to supply approximately 70 percent of Gaza’s normal flow of electricity.
